John Butler Trio – Spring To Come lyrics

I lost my love, I lost my light.
I can't find em anymore.
And if there's something I could give,
What I've given it before now
Cause I came back a little broken.
Things don't fit anymore.

[Chorus:]
And I wait for spring to come.
But how long, tell me how long?
Cause I wither at my post,
I'm walking like a ghost and no home.
How long, tell me how long? How long?

Summer out there on the horizon.
Maybe they were glimmer or hole.
Maybe it's just a mirage,
Cause you never know.
Maybe things have changed.
Storm clouds past take their rains.

[Chorus:]
And I wait for spring to come.
But how long, tell me how long?
Cause I wither at my post,
I'm walking like a ghost and no home.
How long, tell me how long? How long?

Out of the darkness, only a light can come.
After a lonely, long night comes the sun. [x4]

    To me the lyrics are about loosing sight of our spirit and becoming a little lost in the darkness of attachment and worldly life and desire. I think he also speaks to being tainted after relationship difficulties and riding it out until Spring Comes. I love the song and initially though it was about him breaking up with his partner Danielle. I don't know if that's true and doesn't make any difference to me as I love his music and this sone is full of hope!
